This museum is apparently part of the KKL, a big complex which includes a concert hall. I visited only the museum. Unfortunately, I caught them as they were changing between exhibits. I found the art very interesting. Modern and challenging and fun. I was very...More

I visited this museum on my own, as it was free with my Swiss Rail Pass. The building is beautiful, both inside and out. The cantilevered extension on the front that hangs over the fountains is really something, as is the glass and steel interior....More

While I liked the building this museum is housed in and it's beautiful location on the Lake, I thought the entrance could've been better identified. Entry is 15 CHF. On the day that I went, there were three or four different exhibitions going on. Mostly...More

We bought a 8 days Swiss travel pass that allows us free entry into the Museum. There were many modern art works on display. Of which some are mind boggling but some that tickles your thinking. On a whole a Museum quite different from the...More

I was very disappointed by the exhibition of so-called "modern art"! Various furniture with colours, paintings in black, various other objects were displayed. I went out of this museum with a feeling of sadness.More

I am sorry, if we didn't meet your expectations, but I also wonder if you were in another museum than the Art Museum of Lucerne. Actually, we have our annual closure since 8th January and before there were neither furniture nor black paintings exposed. Hope...More

we retreated into this museum on a rainy day. It was a bit of a challenge to find as the regular signage was obscured by a special event signage. Take the elevator up to the third floor and explore. I'm no art expert, but it...More
